'Excited and scared': Hawaii volcano spews huge cloud of ash

'Excited and scared': Hawaii volcano spews huge cloud of ashA volcano on Hawaii's Big Island erupted anew Thursday with little sound and only modest fury, spewing a steely gray plume of ash about 30,000 feet (9,100 meters) into the sky that began raining down on a nearby town.

Scientists said the eruption was the most powerful in recent days, though it probably lasted only a few minutes.
